My first experience with Texas BBQ, very impressive. The brisket was fork tender and so tasty, especially with their special sauce. We went with a group and easily found a sot to sit. I would reccomend their onion rings,too.

This by far is the best bbq in Texas. Everyone has to try this. I would drive out of my way. There is a short wait but well worth it.

I love Hard Eight BBQ. I just love it. Queue can be very long but it's definitely worth to wait. And small tip - don't buy any sides - meat is too good!

You can smell the hickory smoked meats as you pull into the parking lot. Their brisket and prime rib are amazing!! A must visit if you're a barbecue aficionado!!

I have been a customer of Hard Eight BBQ for years! I have taken my customers there both from out of town and local. They always ask to go back. Never disappointing. A bit crowded for lunch on Fridays, parking is a challenge on Fridays as well. You cannot beat this place for food taste and the experience!

After a long day of meetings it was great to go to Hard Eight, located just about a mile away from the Comfort Inn, the line was long as usual, but oh so worth the wait. My eyes that day were much bigger than my stomach. It was a constant battle to pick something when it all smells fantastic. I... More

Go-to place when people are in from out of town. Real Texas smoked meats - smoked on site. So tempting to over order because we wanted to try everything and it was all delicious!! Sides are amazing as are desserts - cobbler and banana pudding.

Went here with some clients at their suggestion. I am so happy we came there. Upon arrival you split into 2 lines, that more pretty equally. The line on the left allows you to see the fire that they continually feed into the main BBQ. The smell of mesquite will be part of your clothes when you leave but it... More
